Neuronal A kinase anchor protein (AKAP) homologs, such as AKAPs 75 and 150, tether cAMP-dependent protein kinase II (PKAII) isoforms to the postsynaptic cytoskeleton, thereby creating target sites for cAMP action. These AKAPs, which bind regulatory subunits (RIIs) of PKAII, are also expressed in certain non-neuronal cells. Non-neuronal cell lines that(More)
Plant growth and development are sensitive to light. Light-responsive DNA-binding transcription factors have been functionally identified. However, how transcription initiation complex integrates light signals from enhancer-bound transcription factors remains unknown. In this work, we characterized mutations within the Arabidopsis HAF2 gene encoding(More)
The low affinity neurotrophin receptor p75NTR can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells by NGF and other neurotrophins. To elucidate p75NTR-mediated signal transduction, we screened p75NTR-associated proteins by a yeast two-hybrid system. We identified one positive clone and named NADE (p75NTR-associated cell death executor). Mouse(More)
The whole-genome duplication (WGD) may provide a basis for the emergence of the very characteristic life style of Saccharomyces cerevisiae-its fermentation-oriented physiology and its capacity of growing in anaerobiosis. Indeed, we found an over-representation of oxygen-responding genes in the ohnologs of S. cerevisiae. Many of these duplicated genes are(More)
